Most Popular Hybrid Tea Roses

Of all the roses, hybrid teas produce the largest, most beautiful and fragrant blooms. For this reason, they are the most popular types of roses in the world. Each bloom develops on one long, slender stem. These rose bushes can grow as large as six feet tall, and the flowers can be as wide as five inches across. Hybrid tea roses are commonly sold by florists.
